Not a bug. See libldap/ldif.c:490.
That's old an internal matter, exposed as default wrap width 78
instead of rfc2849's max 76.
This ITS is about the new --ldif-wrap option. The tools can just
subtract 2 from the input value and otherwise keep the current code.
(I do think we should throw away the old bug-compat code and
fix the default 78 to 76, but not in RE24. And I note the bug-
compat comment claims it's off by 1 while it's actually 2:)
